Dr. Carolyn BlackWe are an innovative elementary school (kindergarten through fifth grade) focusing on the constructivist approach to education. We aim to promote reasoning, autonomy, and community throughout the child's day and life at UHCS. We have 6 multiage classes guided by lead and assistant teachers.

School meets 8:00-3:45 Monday through Thursday and 8:00-12:30 Friday. Teachers participate in curriculum development Friday afternoons.

Programs that we provide in our constructivist curriculum include: Math Investigations, Literacy Collaborative model of balanced literacy, Art, Music, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities, Handwriting without Tears, and daily Physical Education.

Family activities include Curriculum Night, Family Math Night, Family Science and Technology Night, Authors' Night, World Bazaar and Field Day. We appreciate your interest in our school. Enjoy your virtual visit! Come in person when you can! We hope you are having a wonderful year!
